There’s been nothing quite like “I am Niseko”, a short film produced by the team at Niseko Photography and Guiding, to capture the void left by COVID-19 in the once-bustling tourist town. The 3-minute edit picked up third place at the recent Niseko Shootout Short Film Festival (watch the whole thing here), where its mesmerising videography and powerful narration impressed online viewers.

Tune in and prepare yourself for a tug of the heartstrings.
